Click/call/visit Grainger (www.grainger.com) & score a 4LHR1.    2nd mortgage not necessary, it's $5.60 to yer mailbox. :)    With the included offset cam, it drops rite in. Still need a frog strangler to determine its weatherproofing. Thanx to vanronin for finding the part.   01 Conc, Mijami Floriduh  OTP 06: http://tinyurl.com/2vk9o2 route map: http://tinyurl.com/4p7pmd

Paulie, I looked in my Grainger book and couldn't find that part # but in Cat# 399 on page 2544 I see a 1XRY6 cam lock with thunb knob. Is that what you're talking about?

Paulie has the number right.  4LHR1 is the Grainger part number. It is the one I ordered and recieved.    Here is the link     https://www.grainger.com/Grainger/wwg/search.shtml?searchQuery=4LHR1&op=search&Ntt=4LHR1&N=0&sst=subset

You can see a picture of this Thumb Turn Lock (TT-058) at the manufacturer's website.  I wanted to see what it looked like before buying one.  Grainger's site says 'picture not available'.    Matt    http://www.compx.com/products-fortmtogen.html

What I'd like to see is a knob that could be left locked or unlocked with the key removed in either position, so I could leave it unlocked while underway, then lock it when leaving the bike unattended.

That could work if it had a round knob, but having the wings probably makes it easier to use with gloves on.

Just installed the non-lockable Thumb lock version on Friday last.  Picked up from Grainger store in Oak Creek, WI after calling 800# to ship one up from Chicago.   Installation went fine.  Collar under wings does not fit perfectly in depression around lock hole so be aware to tighten lock nut evenly underneath to look good.    Functions very well. Like the simplicity of opening the pocket to stuff in gas receipts, pencils, maps.  The other pocket locks up the GPS, phone, gold, etc. just fine.    :-) 

6-14-11 update: Still working like a champ!

5-21-13 update:  And here's the part info from Grainger.

I picked up this knob / lock and will be installing it on my left fairing pocket.
Use them on my trailer too... works good  :)  No Keys to mess with :))
Found them online at this site

fast shippers... search their site for chromed knobs and different sizes.

Does this accomplish what you want?

2 keys at $4.25 each + Radio Shack knobs 2-pack @ $1.99 + JB weld on hand.  Use sandpaper to shave knobs down to 1/2" thick; cut-down key held by setscrew in brass ferrule + JB weld.

They work just fine with gloves and they stay-put just fine when riding in either 'latched' or 'unlatched' position.

Thank You Matt (ManWorkingHere)

I just ordered one from Grainger for pickup - $7.50(ish)

I felt this thread needed to be revived due to its great content.

Here's what it looks like installed.  Not sure if it's the exact same one but looks close.  Came with my bike.

I did just about the same thing but used 3/4" PCV end caps and painted them with black rubber bumper paint so they almost match the lid.  Also removed the last tumbler in the locks and filed the keys to work so you can't use the knobs in the ignition.

Time for pictures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This one is from Grainger's as listed above - Cost under $8.00

This is what comes in the package.  The two parts on the right are not used.



I needed to widen the whole just a bit for the tabbed washer to fit.



I also had to bend (several times - trial and error) the straight tab to make it line up properly with the slot.



The tabbed washer fits nicely.  It sits a bit above the recess, but that's fine.  Can't really tell, plus it helps keep the knob elevated so it does not rub on the plastic.











What is really strange in the photos is.............   It looks like the pocket cover and the inner fairing are two different colors - and yet they are not.  In normal lighting, you cannot see a difference.  Not even a little bit!!    And everything was painted with Krylon Fusion for Plastic, Satin Black.

And there you have it!!!!!!!!!

Lift up the lid - inside slightly behind mid-line - you will see 2 tangs that you squeeze together - the the lid will then slide towards the rear of the bike.

If you need a picture, please let me know.
